Tiana's Bayou Adventure construction walls - January 25 2023
Posted: Wednesday January 25, 2023 10:01am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The construction walls surrounding the former Splash Mountain attraction at Magic Kingdom have been replaced with taller walls to further restrict the view into the construction site of Tiana's Bayou Adventure.

Walls went up overnight following the closure of Splash Mountain, but in some places were only a few feet tall. The new walls are the full 8ft tall height.

The Briar Patch gift shop remains closed and free of walls, with signage still in place.

The restrooms near the former Splash Mountain exit remain open as normal, accessed with a narrow walkway between construction walls.

On the ride itself, the water is fully drained, and the logs have been removed.

I'm pretty sure they just mean how long until the tree is gone.

Wonder how much longer we have with the tree on top. Looks like they're starting to chip away at it

They're probably referring to the dead tree trunk.

What are you trying to say? The hill will remain. But it won't be Chickapin Hill.

How long until Chickapin Hill is removed?

That's exactly what I said. Right on. I'm talking about my views on the info I have about tba (heh perfect abbreviation!)

That is not true at all. I just posted yesterday, just one page back, the link for the general discussion thread... There's also a DL general discussion thread. Somewhere. Take time to learn the forum's search function.

Both positive and negative discussion of Tiana's Bayou Adventure is allowed. Discussions of why Splash was closed, and posts discussing race, slavery, twitter etc, will not be allowed. Talking about how much someone will miss Splash and why does this have to happen is just shaking your fist at the heavens right now. Splash is closed, will soon be just a memory, and will be replaced by Tiana's Bayou Adventure. Posters can speculate on what the attraction may finally be, and whether they think it will be good or bad is allowed. But it is a done deal so there is no point in moaning and groaning about it anymore.

I’m not sure where people are getting the idea that only positive discussion of Tiana’s Bayou Adventure is allowed. Not many of the posts making up the 63 pages of this thread are positive. There’s a difference between being critical and being off-topic.

As for destruction construction work, does anyone have any more pics of workers taking sledgehammers to the attraction?

At this point I’m fine if the positive reinforcement feedback loop is the only voices heard. When or if we get an attraction that is lacking in AAs, or has an overly complex backstory infused throughout the experience, or weighs too heavily in favor of the D+ iteration of the character than the stuff audiences already love, then they only have themselves to blame for not heeding (or hearing) criticism when it was early enough to course correct.

Maybe there are only so many ways to scream " this is sacrilege " and it has been done. Move on......
